Kentucky Libertarians Dump Landham

UPDATE: The Kentucky secretary of state has reversed his position on allowing Sonny Landham to run as an independent.

On Monday evening, the state committee of the Kentucky Libertarian Party voted 9-0 to withdraw its support of Sonny Landham for U. S. senator. The former actor had last week made anti-Arab remarks and blamed the Arabs for the high price of oil.

This means that the Libertarians will not have a candidate against the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, and the Democrat Bruce Lunsford. The secretary of state has said, however, that he will list Landham on the ballot as an independent, since citizens have signed nominating petitions for him.
